Do your hands need energy healing? Do they carry old injuries and memories that transmit today in the strokes of the brush, the pen? If our art hands were fully restored, fully in flow, would our lines be smoother, would we make our mark with more confidence ...? Find out with this energy healing exercise for the artist's hands ...

Art & Energy Art Exercises
Yesterday, I finally finished a work of modern energy art that begun five years ago. It's an energy painting called "Project Sanctuary" and was done with the set up of, "Do whatever you will, dear energy mind!"
Energy art essay by Silvia Hartmann explains about: What is inspiration? | Inspiration EVENT | How do you get inspired? | Artist desperately seeking inspiration | Taking control of artistic inspiration | Find artistic inspiration plus a useful artistic inspiration exercise.
One of my favourite "Bonus Paintings" was Story Island (B) and it is true, I could not wait to get the space to create a full size symbol hybrid painting - Story Island.
On a cool October night, I was drinking red wine and there were some people about who were interested in energy art, but didn't know much or anything about it.
Here is a truly multi-dimensional project for modern energy artists - The Bowl of Blessings. Here, we bring together art and magic, energy and intention, creativity and craft to end up with a single "installation" which serves as a totem in its own right, but can be used for all manner of magical purposes just as perfectly as it can sit by itself on a plinth in an art exhibition. Oh, and of course, you can play with it. Age range - 3 to 300. Awesome. x
I found this article in the archives which describes "The Artist's Prayer" - the artist's contribution to change. This is clearly Art Solutions, not "art therapy as you know it, Jim" where the experience of pain simply gets regurgitated, or the problem/s simply get re-stated, yet again and ad infinitum.
I could talk of this for hours; over to the aspect, 2003.
So here we have the Magic Eggsercise - an egg, Art Solutions style, to empower a project or a goal. The egg is of course, a super-metaphor and works particularly well with the topic of projects and goals that have begun but have not yet "hatched" fully.
A lovely energy art exercise that combines conscious attention, art - and magic :-)
Created Easter 2016 for the Energy Art group.
"It's colouring in, Jim - but not as you know it ..."
Art Solutions makes colouring in more than just a way to switch off your mind for stress relief. This is powerful positive modern energy at play - healing, inspiring, evolutionary, (r)evolutionary ... :-)

I am an artist and an energist. I can get very emotional about my art. Of course, I would. But some of these emotions are indicative of injuries in the energy system, and more than that.
Missing events - missing memories - might be far more to blame ...
Art is for everyone, not just the chosen few who have spent decades learning the secrets of craft in the lofty towres of academia. To make meaningful art, you need passion and an understanding how to translate what you want to share with the world into material objects.
Here is a set of very modern energy art exercises to get you started with your own True Creative Art.
And talking of primal art, what could be more primal than sitting and gazing into a fire? What might you see within? Spirits, shapes, angels, birds, stories waiting to be told?
Did all visionary art arise from fire?
What do you see?
Primal art has a feature that sets it apart from "modern art" or "contemporary art" or even "classical art" - namely that it is from a place where art and magic were one and the same and had not yet been broken apart. Art was magic, magic was art and as all art served a magical purposes, so did all magical purposes serve art itself. The logical next step from 1st Art is the hand print on the cave wall, and then to go on and put other things on the cave wall as well.
So it made sense to make a cave painting at this juncture.
Yes, well, what do I say to this?
It seems my art is different by design ...
Check this out, see if you can "spot the real Silvia Hartmann" amongst this little lot.
Well, technically speaking it's a volcano in a tea cup, or a glass coffee mug, but let's not split hairs here. It's a cup, it's storm and I had fun making it.
This is a model re-enactment of ...
In this second part of the Healing Art series, Silvia Hartmann discusses how to create works of healing art for others, and how to use the healing power of art for the benefit of the healing artist.

And how do you make a real art solutions symbol painting?

Now it is true that many people have given up on "art" and especially, on abstract paintings, as being elitist, silly, decadent or completely pointless in any sense of reality, but I am hoping that we can change that.
Here is a fascinating exercise in contacting, reading and responding to "the energy of a work of abstract art".
Zero is to me a very important painting. It was a process that I did not design for myself, but it happened over quite a long period of time, from 2000 to 2001.
I had been painting various things - mostly vision based paintings - for some time and felt I could go on like that forever. When I feel like that, I know it is time to move on ...
